There is nothing like a supportive spouse! Report
Good article. Report
Hubby has always 'preached' with his example. Report
My husband and I are supporting each other so much through our lifestyle change. We've both lost 33.6 pounds since the beginning of January. We've kept each other strong, worked out together, and cooked meals together. It's going to be us for the rest of our lives, so we want to be the healthiest we can together. Report
my hubby and I are trying to go out walking during the weekends Report
I guess it's time to chime in July 2014...haha! My husband and I are definitely supportive of each other. That being said, we view thinks so differently due to different life experiences. At least that's my theory. We he eat meals I prepare....absolutely and will even prepare healthful meals for me. PROBLEM? Yup, his choices do NOT turn me on due to presentation, selection of food, etc, etc. My choices are still healthful but in my opinion more balanced, tasty and appealing to the eye. The other thing is he is a grazer and if I eat between meals I am doofed. Don't care if that's a word...haha. What I will say is, anything I ask him to do with me in regards to activity he is game. When I decide not to suggest it, he will which encourages me to get off my behind and just do it. We will work it out. Each day I am becoming more aware of what choices I have, the ones I am making, and how they will affect me each day. I'm in it to win it this time!!!!! Report
Problem is my skinny stick of a husband has no weight to lose... He complains that meals are not large enough for him. I sure wish he'd learn to fix his own snacks. Anyone else serious about losing 20 lb? I have no problem getting to the gym. I love working out! I just need to eat about 300-400 cal less per day consistently. Report
I just started on SP and 2 days after, my hubby did too. We've always talked about getting healthy....we are finally doing it and SP is a huge help. I've lost 11 pounds and my hubs has lost 17 - so far! We both want to lose a 40 pounds each! We eat healthy and control our portions and try to eat 3 meals a day! None of which we've done in the past. I run and exercise on 5 - 6 days a week. I hope my hubs starts to exercise with me as well but am so grateful for his support in the kitchen. And we are both making progress! Report

My fiance is doing this with me and I don't think I have ever had such motivation to stick to it! He's the one who's trying to slack off and I'm the one giving him crap about not getting off is butt! LOL It definitely makes the journey much easier. Report
I enjoy my husband walking with me. I even had got him to go with me to aerobics classes. He believe in good health. I haven't been walking like I should because of my hip. So he kind of stop as well. He tell me he will be glad when we can walk again because he miss his partner. Report
My husband I are walking together and he's supportive of my SparkPeople progress... It's great! I had to ditch my plans for being able to walk Bay to Breakers this year due to a convention we need to attend and he wasn't ready to ramp up the walking too much, but after the initial disappointment I realized we're in it for the long haul and that's a good thing!

Everything's easier when the people around us support us! That's a rare situation. We have to do things for ourselves and let others do their thing--otherwise, it'll drive us crazy--in my case crazier :)

I know so few people with supportive loved ones (including myself). I know what's best for me. And that's all I can do. Report
